School Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the School Blog Hop! This is a two day blog hop in which we will feature different projects both days. I hope you enjoy as you are hopping along. There will be a grand prize winner drawn from those who comment on all of the blogs both days. The grand prizes are from Cloud9 (or on Facebook) who is giving away a $20 gift certificate to their store. And Jens DigiStamps who will be giving away a $5 gift certificate to their store which is worth five digistamps. I would appreciate if you could take the time to check out their sites if you have time as we are happy to have them as our sponsors.

You should be coming here from Clare's blog, if not you may want to go back and start at the beginning.

If you get lost along the way, here is the complete line up:

I am working on my 2012 calendar and thought I'd share my September page with you.

 I created this using the calendar and Typeset A papers from Close to my Heart.  I also used the Art Philosophy and My Community Cricut cartridges to cut the letters and schoolhouse.  The arrow is created using Creme Brulee grossgrain ribbon and the photo backings are Juniper cardstock.  The letters are cut from Creme Brulee and Juniper cardstock. I sponge daubed the top of the calendar using Juniper ink and September is backed with Desert Sand sponge daubing.  The accent across the back is made with color-ready kraft borders.

 Thanks for hopping with us!  You can leave a comment here for your chance at our monthly blog candy and we would love for you to become a fan of our Facebook page.

Your next stop is Jearise's blog.
